I am going to SHOT Show!

I am really excited to announce that I am able to attend SHOT this year. I only bought my plane ticket a couple of days ago 🙂

You can look forward to some great SHOT Show coverage on the blog next week. To wet your appetite, here is some unpublished photos from last year …

Steve Johnson

Founder and Dictator-In-Chief of TFB. A passionate gun owner, a shooting enthusiast and totally tacti-uncool. Favorite first date location: any gun range. Steve can be contacted here.


  • I thought you did a great job covering when you weren’t there in person. Guess I’ll be linking to you a lot next week.

    i like the pic of the “no photography” sign.

  • MrSatyre

    Wait a second! No photography?!? What’s THAT all about? Is this one of those stupid rules no one enforces, like cameras at a rock concert?

    • MrSatyre, do they enforce it!!!!!!! Dude, I was being harassed by security non-stop for having a camera (even though I had a media badge).

      They do make a big deal about photography. In theory it is to stop competitors photographing each other.

  • Will look forward to this year’s coverage, Steve. Last year’s was fantastic.

    All the very best!

    Have fun at SHOT and don’t forget to throw your weight around and get loads of free stuff.

    I’m obsessed by sub-compact 9mms at the moment, so if you have time, handle a few and let us know which one is going to be king of the CCWs.

    Oh and don’t forget the Booth Babes, handle a few of those as well. 😉

  • Steve

    Congrats! I hope you have a good time and come back with some awesome news and pics 😀

  • Art Vandelay

    What is that first rifle, the one in the case with the barrel removed?

  • Lance

    Get me some updates and pics of the Colt CM 901 Steve!

  • You’re a lucky man.

  • Hey, get a hold of me and I’ll try to catch you for a beer or something!


  • Dakota

    Your a lucky man, I wish I could be there as well. Get some cool info for us/photos. (Sneak em’) 🙂

  • Are there restrictions on photography / video at SHOT? I was there last year shooting photos the whole time and had no problems.

  • dogon13

    Stop by booth 16747 and say hello

  • I love the attitude of taking a picture of the sign that says you can’t take a picture!


    Speaking of beautiful, is that gun real gold or fake golden plate?
    Looks cool either way, is it shootable like that or just a showpiece?
